Schwartz reportedly started dating "Jane the Virgin" actress Gina Rodriguez in January 2016. At the time, a source close to Rodriguez told Us Weekly that she was "so happy" and "she thinks he is so great and all her friends love him." Throughout their relationship, the pair were private and did not frequently post on social media or attend many public gatherings together.

Though the exact time the two split is unknown, by December 2016, Rodriguez was posting cute photos on Instagram with her current fiancé, "Jane the Virgin" and "Someone Great" costar Joe LoCicero. Schwartz and Rodriguez must have split sometime before that.
